I have used both Quick Erase and Erase to erase a DVD-RW. It always comes back that the disc is successfully erased. When I open it, all the files are still there. How do you erase a DVD-RW?

That's odd. Have you ejected and reinserted the erased disc?

Try erasing using Disk Utility to see if that works. I don't know any reason that Toast reports that it is erased yet the directory is still mountable.

I tried Disk Utility yesterday and that didn't work either. This afternoon I put a different DVD-RW in Toast and it successfully deleted everything. So I have no idea why it won't erase the 1st DVD. They're both from the same box.
